Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

We are family of four; parents and two teenagers and had a studio on second floor. The apartment was clean and since we basically only slept there it was enough for us. However, the room did not had air condition but a fan in the table, which was of course better than nothing but could not call it as air condition which was stated in the description. We stayed for four nights and could have really used clean and dry towels at some point, in the end our towels (summer and teenagers) were really awful as there was no place to dry them either. Since there are no elevators one could hear everyone coming up or down from the stairs - the corridor was echoing so we woke up almost every night when other residents came home early in morning (or late in the evening, especially drunken loud youngsters!). So the apartment was not serviced (no filling up of toilet paper or changing clean towels or cleaning at all) and at least in summer there were several groups of young people who were really loud. What is also good to realize is that you have to check in in totally different place, almost two kilometers from the apartment. We did walked from there to the apartment but with luggage and sun, I would not do it again.

Loved the facilities provided. Room was on 2nd floor, clean and fully furnished. Personal washing machine was missing which was covered up by the common machine in the basement. Care takers were very helpful, wifi speeds were good. Worth it

We booked this hotel through a travel agent. The location is close to public transport, a short walk to the end of the road to the tram that links Alexanderplatz - buses, U-banh and the S-bahn. Down the other end of the street is a Green Supermarket - a little more expensive, however, around the corner and 15 min walk is a normal market for your supplies. The check-in was fine, the entry was through a set of doors then stairs to the lift/stairs/rooms, on the last day we found another entry (from the side street) and the lifts to the ground level, as a family of 5 travelling with large bags, it would have been nice if the check-in person told us this access on check-in, one reason for the average rating. We stayed on the level above the shops, so we had an apartment above us, this was the second reason for the average rating, the guests in the apartment above thought it would be a great idea to bounce a ball from 10pm to 3 am each night. On the second night I rang the after hours number at 3 am and was told to go a knock on their door to solve the problem, I didn't accept this solution. Luckily, they must have solved the problem by another means. After hundreds of reviews, this is one of my few negatives reviews. Hint: ask for the top floor, and ask explicitly for street level lift access if you have heavy bags.

I really enjoyed staying here, I arrived alone and stressed after a long journey with delays- the staff on arrival were very friendly and even upgraded our room to a large apartment. The apartment itself was massive, a really great size with three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms were significantly better than the other one, but as there were only four of this didn't matter too much. The location is a little far out, but still great. When we went there didn't seem to be many other people there and it was very quiet. Asides from at around 10pm in the evening we never had any problems with noise or heard anything. The only point I would make is that it would be nice for the bedrooms to each have a mirror in, as all trying to get ready with one mirror is very hard. Overall a great, spacious place to stay.

This is my second time I stayed at OTA-Berlin and Metzer str 8. Wonderful place and quality service from the people that worked there. It's very central. A short walk from Alexandersplatz, where you can do lot of shopping. I will visit again!!
